TCHAIKOVSKY: Sleeping Beauty (The) (Dutch National Ballet, 2003) (NTSC)

Tchaikovsky (1840 - 1893) THE SLEEPING BEAUTY
Het Nationale Ballet - Sofiane Sylve, Gaël Lambiotte. Holland Symfonia, Conductor Ermanno Florio

Tchaikovsky and Petipa’s timeless ballet - acknowledged to be the most pure and demanding piece in the classic romantic repertoire – brings out Petipa’s rich dance vocabulary with the sparkling virtuosity a superb performance needs. Recorded at Het Muziektheater in Amsterdam with The Dutch National Ballet in 2004. Choreographer Sir Peter Wright’s sensitive staging closely reflects Marius Petipa's original work. Philip Prowse’s ravishing Baroque sets and costumes add the glamour and grandeur essential to a ballet intended for the court of the Russian Tsar.
